    Pinellas County Regional Juvenile Detention Center

     
    The Pinellas Regional Juvenile Detention Center is a cooperative program between the Department of Juvenile Justice and the School Board of Pinellas County, Florida. The program provides a short-term educational program for children that are detained pending court action. The detention school program maintains communication with the child’s home school, offers regular school courses, and reconnects the at risk or dropout youth to school and learning. The detention center has multiple classrooms, computer labs and physical education. The program must meet all children’s nutritional, emotional, educational, recreational, hygienic, and physical needs while in detention. The ultimate goal is to reintegrate all children into the school system so that they may graduate.
